Today I had a conference with Ryan's teacher. they wanted to meet with me before the Nov. conferences to discuss a few things. I figured it about about the skills he does not have like holding a pencil etc. When she said the director was going to join us in the meeting I knew this was not going to go well.
After about 4 weeks of school they feel Ryan would do better in Pre-K 3's because he just is not where the other kids are. He is struggling to keep up with and just confused on the structure of the day. I know he is on the younger side and was behind in some area's but I honestly thought he would be fine moving up even if he was a bit behind because I knew we were going to hold him back next year. Well he is struggling too much that he will get nothing out of the program at all and would do better moving back to the 3's where he could flourish in that program. I was reluctant to keep him back last year because he would have the same teacher. Well they have 2 lead teacher which team together and teach alternating days of the week so he would get the feel of having to totally different teachers and curriculum. DH is concerned he would be home board after the holidays so he will speak to the director about this.
At this point I think we have decided to move him back because it's best for him. Of course I am devastated because he has to leave all his friends and have to make new ones. He has to start all over in trusting another set of teachers. Then I feel bad because I don't think he will understand why he has to move. I am sad because i hate that he has to go through this. In general most people are nice but there are few people who go to the school that will say mean things about my son to each other. I don't want to be the butt of other peoples conversations. So that is what is going on in a nut shell with my son.
What would you do if you where faced with the same thing?
